Preventing Contamination in Your Daily Laboratory Work

Preventing Contamination in Your Daily Laboratory Work

In order to prevent contaminations in cell cultures, it is imperative that equipment be thoroughly cleaned, or exchanged, after work with each cell line. Sterile technique is still the overarching principle wherever cell culture is concerned. Many obvious and perhaps not quite so obvious potential sources of contamination exist in the lab. As mentioned earlier, contamination is not limited to contamination with prokaryotic cells or fungi, but it also includes cross-contamination with cells from other cell lines.

We invite you to enter our lab to see the potential sources of contamination and find out what to do in order to protect your cells against contamination.

As preventing contamination is an everyday task in a cell culture lab we furthermore invite you to watch this tutorial video which gives you some helpful practical hints on how to prevent contamination.

In this webinar you will learn how to recognize and identify different types of contaminants in cultivated cells. We discuss how to apply aseptic techniques and preventive hygiene and give practical tips for preventing contamination by incorporating standard procedures into your daily culture practice.
